Journaling Prompt

Journaling Junkie Challenge #105: In What Ways Do You Notice the Passing of Time?
Since my husband and I will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary this month, a page about being together for 30+ years seemed the obvious choice for this challenge. I found a picture from shortly before we were married and paired it with a recent photo. 



Good grief, we were young! Phil had the Amish beard thing going, but shaved it off before the wedding, much to my mother's relief.



In what ways do you notice the passing of time? Looking at old photos and seeing how much everyone has changed? Birthdays coming round and realizing the years are moving quickly? Here's an opportunity to pair an older photo with a newer one and tell your story!

  1. I love your layout! Congrats on 30 years! That is quite an accomplishment! I really notice time ticking by when I look back at all my teacher photos that are taken each year. I will have to get those photos out and onto a scrap page!

  2. Pages like these with two "comparing" photos are my favourite kind of reflective scrapbooking. I love this.

    Thirty years? Fantastic!

  4. Congrats on three decades! I LOVE that beard ;)

    I notice time passing when I make a pop-culture reference my students no longer have a frame of reference for! That, and watching grey hairs pop up...but that's another story!

  9. Congratulations on 30 years together! Love the two photos side by side. And I like how you did those little hearts in your border. I seem to measure time passing more by what is happening to other people - children growing up for example.
